I have had this plant in my home for a little over a year now. It keeps growing and growing! I am running out of space for it. I have searched the net for info that will help me identify this guy. Can anyone out there help me?

Welcome! tp NGA

My first thought is that its a Kalanchoe. Some of them get really tall and need staking. I don't think I've ever seen one quite that tall (long) - it may need more light.

Looks like a Senecio.

I agree with Dave, perhaps one of these species.
Blue Chalk Fingers (Senecio vitalis)
Senecio (Senecio cylindricus)

Looks like it could use a lot more light.

Thank you so much! Mystery solved. I am now going to find a sunnier spot for this guy.
